October 19, 2016 – Recently, we were able to get in touch with Mr. Piotr Gursztyn, who is the author of a recently published book: "Rzeź Woli. Zbrodnia nierozliczona" – "Slaughter of Wola. Unpunished atrocities" - (Wola is a District of Warsaw) - ISBN: 978-83-7427-869-0.
While answering our questions on October 16, 2016, he stated that:

  1. There are no records and he has no knowledge about the fate of people at that particular addresses during the Warsaw Uprising

  2. He did not encounter the name Wajszczuk during his search for the book

  3. Bema street was under German control during the whole duration of the Uprising.
    People living along that street could have been victims of round-ups and executions early, around August 5, 1944. There are no records from these location, but there is also a possibility that Germans “missed” this location.
    It is also known that the inhabitants of the adjoining small Ludwika street were only expelled from their houses on August 7, without shooting,

  4. Przyokopowa street was captured by the Germans around August 13. There were also some atrocities and shooting there (even after an earlier official order by Gen. von dem Bach to stop them!). Because the fighting was going on in this area already for several days and people knew about the atrocities, many had chance to escape earlier. In his book, there is some information about the nearby Hrubieszowska street.

  5. The Museum of Warsaw Uprising is in the process of compiling a list of civilian victims of Wola - http://www.1944.pl/ofiary-cywilne.html

3. Wajszczuk Lucjan, Nowy Świat 19, tel. 4-75.

Substantial amount of information about Lucjan and his wife was gathered from several sourced during the past several years, but we still were not able to establish from where did he arrive in Warsaw and to which Family branch did he belong – see.
